BUSINESS TODAY - The Stand for Safety initiative is a handbook that's been made by Bumble in a partnership with the Centre for Social Research and Nyaaya to "drive awareness around digital safety and support the community in recognising and combating online abuse, bullying, and discrimination". CSR is a non-profit organisation that works on creating a "violence-free, gender-just society" in the country and Nyaaya is an independent open access digital resource that provides simple and actionable information that educates people about their legal rights and how to exercise them.
Bumble conducted a study revealing that 50% of people have encountered hateful content online and 25% of women have "witnessed negative comments about their physical appearance and abuse against women at least once a week".
Mark Brooks: We have our work cut out protecting users from bad and downright rogue behavior. Watch out for the Trust & Safety Connect quarterly events to connect with your colleagues on matters of trust and safety.
